The morning I left for college is still a vivid memory to me. I woke up at 5 a.m. to catch my flight and hurriedly said goodbye to my mother, upset that she wasn't able to come to the airport to drop me off.

Namaste from Jaipur! It's been a little over a week since I've arrived in India but I couldn't possibly sum up my experience in one blog post. Jaipur architecture is breathtaking, traffic is chaotic, the food is delicious, and Indian mornings feel like a fantasy in comparison to the hot and humid...
